Light Therapy: Acne

 LIGHT THERAPY FOR ACNE

Flawless Vegas now offers Acne Light Therapy. This professional treatment is very popular in Los Angeles and New York, with celebrities such as Kim and Kourtney Kardashian and Jessica Alba having light therapy facials.

Q: How does blue light technology work?

A: Blue light kills the acne-causing bacteria known as Propionibacterium acnes, or P acnes. The added presence of infrared light causes the oil glands to shrink in size. The result is less oil in the skin and less bacteria, leading to the resolution, and prevention, of acne in the treated areas.

Q: Who is light therapy recommended for?

A: Clients have good results treating not only mild, but moderate and even severe, cystic or scarring acne. The blue light destroy bacteria within follicles and pores beneath the skin’s surface, treating mild to moderate acne and helping to achieve bright, clear skin. All patients with concerns over unwanted acne are candidates for treatment, regardless of their skin tone or severity of acne.

Q: What in-office procedures use blue light therapy?

A: Blue LED technologies have been used in medical acne treatments for many years. Both blue light in-office and at-home are FDA cleared, since they use the same acne-fighting light wavelengths and are safe to use.

Q: What are the benefits of in-office blue light treatments?

A: In-office treatments are more aggressive, and due to the size of the technology used, can treat larger areas in a shorter time. Patients who undergo in-office treatment benefit from maintenance with the home product, to keep the bacteria from recurring and the acne from flaring up.

Q: What are the benefits of at-home blue light treatments?

A: Home devices can be used at the convenience of the patient, any time of the day or night and lead to similar improvements. The incredible advancements in at-home tools allow for consumers to achieve efficacy on their own schedule.

THE TREATMENT

  • Arrive to your treatment session clean-faced – no makeup or skincare products; clean, bare skin will allow for the most effective light absorption
  • The fabulous Flawless staff will get you checked in and help to get you fully situated and comfortable before starting your 20 minute light session
  • Though the treatment lights are safe for eyes, goggles are available for your comfort
  • That’s it – sit back and relax while the therapy lights kill acne bacteria & soothe inflammation

A series of weekly or bi-weekly light treatments for several weeks are recommended to achieve optimal results. The amount and frequency of treatments that you will need depends on the severity of your acne and how well it responds to treatment. Many clients see results within two to four weeks. To maintain clear, healthy skin after the initial series, regular sessions are recommended.
